Made by GrapheneGrafito sailing yacht is a 37-meter conceptual super yacht born out of the idea to use graphene as a material of the future. This type of material would reduce corrosion and build a better quality yacht, than those that are on the market today.GRAPHENE
  • It is ultra light yet immensely strong
  • It is 200 times stronger than steel, but it is incredibly flexible
  • It is the thinnest material possible as well as being transparent
  • It is a superb conductor and can act as a perfect barrier - not even helium can pass through it
I tried to make more use of geometric forms such as a hexagon, triangle, circle and the golden ratio. On the deck of the ship is the light that I call a symphony of light, for the shape I used the notes of a famous symphony in the hope to create some kind of harmonic influence. The whole project was an attempt to make meaningful forms of a meaningful product. Basically, I was going with ``form follows functions`` principle. In many products, the conceptual ideas behind design process were usually not seen, it would be nice to see how people react to these ideas.
